    8 in chefs knife.....not much you won't be able to handle

    Food processor.....one of the best most used things in my kitchen

    12 in. cast-iron skillet....again you wont need much more

    Cutting board so you can cut stuff

    That will give you a kitchen that will be able to handle allot of stuff and you won't need much else other than some things like untencils

    Very good, high quality knife....or an old, well used, well seasoned cast-iron skillet. I'm partial to Griswolds.

    A good chef's knife - I also have a paring knife for fruits but the majority of chopping is done with the chef's knife. I actually have a bunch if knives but really only use those two. I make a lot of homemade liquors, bone broth and soups, so a fine mesh basket strainer also gets a ton of use. I bought a food mill this year to process my tomatoes for canning sauce and it is invaluable. A 10 inch skillet, regular sized soup pot and a bigger stock pot are essential - all are heavy, steel bottomed pots I bought at Marshall's. cuisinart brand, I think, I was lucky to get a bunch of Le Creuset crockery from my mom -they are 20 years old and still in great shape. A micro plane is essential for zesting citrus for my limoncello. I have a little 4 cup chopper for making chimichurris and pestos. I have a set of mixing bowls and Le Creuset silicon spatulas that get a ton of use. I like the OXO brand a lot - no carpal tunnel issues and the mixing bowls are perfect.

    Yea just get this for you knife. I have a Shun, and ceramic knives and you will do just fine with a good $30 knife. Now it won't hold an edge as long but just get a steel and it will work fine for a good long time.
